The extensive storm damage in Albertville Monday was caused by straightline winds, not a tornado.

In a damage report, the National Weather Service said a severe thunderstorm produced extensive straightline wind damage in several areas across town.

A brick building sustained significant roof damage at the intersection of Highway 431 and Mathis Mill Road. A large section of the roof was lifted and peeled off. Wooden power poles were snapped, and a gas station sign was destroyed. The debris was strewn well into Highway 431.

On the north side of the road at the intersection of Highland Avenue, a BBQ restaurant sustained major damage. A building had roof damage, and a sign was heavily damaged.

The damage in Albertville was consistent with straightline winds of 90 to 100 MPH, according to the NWS.
